    after loosing both of my peacock tree frogs last year Ive decided to rebuild the viv before getting some more frogs. I hated the foam background that came with the exoterra and because I didnt know any better i left it in, the crickets ate in and it just ended up being a holey mess. I was...

    I had a spare Clearseal tank and a few other bits and bobs knocking about so I decided I'd make a new viv with it all. The spare tank: Bit of Kingspan board I found in the warehouse in work: Few 'weapons of mass destruction': After a bit of chopping and shaping, this is what I...
